    Press and hold the Home button AND the Sleep button for about 15 seconds. The touch should then reboot itself and start up properly.

    If things like that keep happening consistantly even after you do what the above poster said then I recommend you restore it.

    It will not, it's just a manual reboot.
    Another was it to just hold down the sleep/wake button for a few seconds then slide to power off.
